About


In early 2009 I started to cut up broken skateboard decks trying to design wall art. Fitting together the pieces and sanding the edges with a disc sander formerly used for granite, I started to see birds in the shapes that were fitting together.
So I began to make bird shaped wall art out of the recycled skateboard pieces. After a few sales on Etsy and some custom orders the shop gained some good positive momentum.
Since then I haven't stopped and now I'm adding jewelry design to the mix including rings, bracelets, dread beads and pendants.
The best way to see how I started and where I'm at now with recycled skateboard design, is to look at my ''sales'' section on Etsy as well as my Skatebird pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

-New for 2015- HandmadeTee Shirts! -
Always using quality tee shirts, some graphics are airbrushed with stencils (3 kinds of stencils: steel, handcut and machine cut) and some tees are screen printed.
